"High court to review parts of anti-terrorism law
(AP) – 39 minutes ago
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court will consider whether portions of a law that makes it a crime to provide 'material support or resources' to designated terrorist groups are unconstitutional.
The justices said Wednesday they will hear the Obama administration's appeal of an appeals court ruling that declared parts of the law unconstitutionally vague.
The law , frequently used by federal prosecutors since Sept. 11, bars financial and other aid to any group designated a terrorist organization. The individuals and groups that challenged the law argued that it prohibits aid to lawful, nonviolent activities of designated organizations. In this case, the groups work with the Kurdish Workers Party in Turkey and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka."
